The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Moses climbed from the Plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, the peak of Pisgah facing Jericho. God showed him all the land from Gilead to Dan, 1 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the LORD showed him the whole land--from Gilead to Dan,
2 all Naphtali, Ephraim, and Manasseh; all Judah reaching to the Mediterranean Sea; 2 all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the western sea,
3 the Negev and the plains which encircle Jericho, City of Palms, as far south as Zoar. 3 the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar.
4 Then and there God said to him, "This is the land I promised to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob with the words 'I will give it to your descendants.' I've let you see it with your own eyes. There it is. But you're not going to go in." 4 Then the LORD said to him, "This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, 'I will give it to your descendants.' I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it."
5 Moses died there in the land of Moab, Moses the servant of God, just as God said. 5 And Moses the servant of the LORD died there in Moab, as the LORD had said.
6 God buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth Peor. No one knows his burial site to this very day. 6 He buried him in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is.
7 Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyesight was sharp; he still walked with a spring in his step. 7 Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone.
8 The People of Israel wept for Moses in the Plains of Moab thirty days. Then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses came to an end. 8 The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over.
9 Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. The People of Israel listened obediently to him and did the same as when God had commanded Moses. 9 Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the LORD had commanded Moses.
10 No prophet has risen since in Israel like Moses, whom God knew face-to-face. 10 Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,
11 Never since has there been anything like the signs and miracle-wonders that God sent him to do in Egypt, to Pharaoh, to all his servants, and to all his land 11 who did all those miraculous signs and wonders the LORD sent him to do in Egypt--to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land.
12 - nothing to compare with that all-powerful hand of his and all the great and terrible things Moses did as every eye in Israel watched. 12 For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
